Fellow Lightning prospect and teammate Ryan Zuhlsdorf launched a season-high 4 shots, but also was on the ice for two of Michigan State’s goals. Mitch Lewandowski (undrafted) once again scored twice for MSU and Zach Osburn (undrafted) notched four assists to lead the Spartan attack.

    St. Cloud State improves to 17-3-2 (9-1-2 NCHC) and hit the road next weekend for a showdown in Grand Forks against #20 North Dakota.

    After sitting on a bus Friday night for hours waiting for a jack-knifed tractor trailer to get cleared from blocking Hwy 83, the Pioneer squad had to rally twice Saturday night just to preserve a tie with cross-state and conference rival Colorado College. The Tigers were 3 of 4 on the power play, building a 2-1 lead in the 1st and a 4-2 lead in the 2nd using an efficient man advantage.

    The Dutchmen got a pair of goals each from Brandon Estes (undrafted) and Ryan Walker (undrafted) along with a 36-save performance from Darion Hanson (undrafted) as Union College routed the top-ranked Huskies in the opening match of the Three Rivers Classic in Pittsburgh on Friday night.

    Bolt prospect Cole Guttman scored his 8th goal of the season and added an assist as the Pioneers rolled over the River Hawks in Lowell Saturday night. Fellow Lightning prospect Ryan Lohin assisted on UML’s lone goal of the evening. Guttman opened the scoring late in the 2nd period and then helped setup the first of two Jarid Lukosevicius (undrafted) power play markers early in the 3rd as Denver sprung to a 3-0 lead. Lohin set up a Seth Barton (DET, 2018 3rd round pick) power play goal later in the 3rd to cut the UML deficit to 3-1 but Pioneer goalie Filip Larsson (DET, 2016 6th round pick) shut the door the rest of the way. Guttman’s 8th tally is good for tops in the nation among all freshman, and teammate Emilio Pettersen (CGY, 2018 6th round pick), who notched a pair of assists in the game, ranks 2nd among collegiate freshman with 17 points.

    The Pioneers improve to 10-4-2 (4-4 NCHC) and continue their road trip through Madison next weekend for a two-game series against the Badgers. UML drops to 8-8-1 (4-4-1 HEAST) and gears up to take on the #2-ranked Minutemen at the Amherst campus next Friday night.
